Pagination or Media Count:
A collection of models developed to simulate atmospheric transport of local fallout from nuclear detonations is described. These models comprise the Transport Module of the Department of Defense Land Fallout Prediction System acronym DELFIC. Details of the physical bases of the models as well as the Transport Module computer programs are presented. The programs provide for temporal and three-dimensional spatial variation of the wind field. Wind-field construction from input data can be accomplished by one of several preprogrammed methods that may be selected on the basis of the type and quantity of available data. Submodels for special local circulation systems can be superposed on the macrowind system. A capability to simulate highly variable topography is included. The computer programs are essentially open ended with regard to capacity for particle, wind field, and topography data.
